First new Tesla customers to configure Model 3


For the first time, new customers who have reserved a Model 3 in the USA will be able to configure it. Until now, Tesla had only invited prior customers to set up their EV online. This indicates Model 3 production may be getting underway as planned.

The news was reported by a Reddit user, who confirmed their customisation option, after having ordered the Model 3 on the first day it became available. A number of additional users also confirmed that the new roll-out is taking place across different regions.

Furthermore, many new customers will be receiving their vehicles in the next 3 to 6 weeks. Currently production and customisation are a fairly simple matter for Tesla, since the options are still quite limited. Despite this, European Tesla drivers will still have to wait until 2019 for the delivery of new Model 3s. Previously, there had been talk of delivery in the second half of 2018.

New orders will be slow to be delivered as well, considering that Tesla is still holding preference for recurring customers, and new buyers are added to the bottom of the list. In the same thread, Reddit user netjack reports having ordered a new Tesla Model 3 on the 01.04.2016, but still had not received a configuration invitation. His father, who owns a Model X, let him make another reservation under his name, which resulted in a configuration invitation only days later.
